Pakistan’s bowling has been below-par in the ICC World Cup 2023. Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf, who were bowling well before the tournament, lost their sheen in the global tournament in India.

In his conversation with Sanjay Bangar, Shaheen admitted that Naseem Shah’s absence from World Cup impacted his bowling.

“I spoke to Shaheen Afridi about the impact Naseem Shah’s injury had on Pakistan’s bowling. He told me that they have missed him a lot and his bowling has taken a lot of him because Naseem suffered an unfortunate injury,” Sanjay Bangar said during the ongoing match between Pakistan and England at yr the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Pakistan are out of the semi-final and they are playing for their pride in the last game of the campaign.
